The barn is a long vernacular stone building nestled in a quiet valley near the Wicklow border with a wood floored huge interior space (about 20 x 5metres) and a large open fireplace. It sleeps up to 18 people comfortably and is mainly used for yoga retreats and low key family gatherings so not suitable for parties or boozy gatherings.
